    1. social login icons have disappeared from the newest version…Why does this matter? If people see those icons they are 20 times more likely to post a comment…It’s easy, simple, clean, and more trustworthy from your users point of view.

    2. social login is now a FARCE…you still have to register for a Disqus account…disgusting…A big impediment to users commenting.

    3. if you change your comment plugin later, your comments are GONE…that’s a whole lot of faith.

    4. last, and probably worst, it added 30 http requests and seriously slows down your website…this is one of the cornerstones of good seo/adwords/etc.; a fast loading website…And this plugin kills it…

    They could clean all of these things up easily. If they do, I’ll give it another try, because it does look nice.

    Sincerely,
